Phase Transformations: Examples from Titanium and Zirconium Alloysby Srikumar Banerjee
Synopses & Reviews
This book deals with phase transformations mainly from a physical metallurgist's viewpoint. Almost all types of phase transformations and reactions that are commonly encountered in inorganic materials are covered and the underlying thermodynamic, kinetic and crystallographic aspects elucidated. In metallurgical literature mere are many examples from iron based alloys for describing the characteristic features of different types of transformations. Here the authors cite examples of phase transformations and reactions in titanium and zirconium based systems and successfully demonstrate that these alloys, intermetallics and ceramics exhibit an even wider range of phase changes as compared to ferrous systems, and that the simpler crystallography involved renders them more suitable for developing a basic understanding of the transformations.
This book will be useful to metallurgists, solid-state physicists and chemists, ceramists and mineralogists.
The terms phase transitions and phase transformations are often used in an interchangeable manner in the metallurgical literature. In this book, transformations driven by pressure changes, radiation and deformation and those occurring in nanoscale multila
